Most of our customers purchase cruising spinnakers when they want to increase performance in light air. They are not for racing, but rather for casual sailing with the family.
In order to avoid breaking the bank, we have chosen lighter hardware appropriate for the expected load on the Catalina 25. For example, the car and block assembly is rated at 1150 pounds, not the larger block with a 2000 pound rating that might be used for a racing spinnaker.
We include a masthead spinnaker crane so the sail can be flown forward of the forestay
and in clear air.
If you plan on flying a spinnaker in heavy air, call our tech support department for assistance in designing the appropriate package for your needs.

The length of this item is based on the original factory specifications. However, the previous owner, like Captain Jack Sparrow, may have had an entirely different idea about how to rig a boat! Please confirm this is the correct length for your particular boat. We cut it from a long length and can't splice it back together again. Your order cannot be canceled, returned or exchanged, but, like Jack, you may have a different idea of what you can use it for!
